As a kid, while her friends were watching TV dreaming of being the next 80’s pop star or Sunderland United pinup, Emma was watching the news, dreaming of being a Westminster Politician.

The problem is, the children of shipyard workers from northern industrial towns don’t become politicians. But as we all know, building the coping strategies to deal with dyspraxia or dyslexia gives us the tenacity to know, that a problem that seems impossible to some may just need some one to look at it from a slightly different point of view.

In this episode of The Codpast, Emma Lewell-Buck shares how with a little dyspraxic thinking, she bucked all the trends.
